Iran: Release Teachers as School Year Begins

Apparently Jailed for Peaceful Union Activities 

(Beirut, September 23, 2015) – The Iranian authorities should immediately release seven teachers apparently detained for peaceful union activities, Human Rights Watch said today. By stepping up the arrests and sentencing of outspoken teachers in the weeks prior to the start of the school year on September 23, 2015, the authorities appear to be sending a message to other educators not to speak out about their concerns.

Since April 2015, security forces have detained five prominent members of Iran’s Teachers’ Association, as well as the secretary general of the Teachers Organization of Iran. Authorities have brought new charges against another educator who had recently completed a six-year sentence in connection with his union activities. In all of the cases, the authorities have cited “security concerns” to justify the detentions.

“Iran has a clear pattern of arresting and harassing teachers for speaking out about the problems that they and their students face,” said Eric Goldstein, deputy Middle East director at Human Rights Watch. “The government should encourage those who seek to improve education rather than arresting them on apparently spurious security charges.”

Sources knowledgeable about the arrests told Human Rights Watch that the educators had been detained for their activities on behalf of students’ and teachers’ rights. Two of the sources who are active with teachers’ groups shared their own experiences of being called in by authorities to answer for their union activities.

The semi-official Iranian Labor News Agency (ILNA) reported that security forces arrested Alireza Hashemi, the secretary general of the Teachers Organization of Iran, at his home on April 19 and transferred him to Evin prison. In 2011, Hashemi was convicted of “gathering and colluding to disrupt national security” and “propaganda against the Islamic Republic” and was given a suspended five-year sentence.

In May 2015, authorities summoned Ali Akbar Baghani to serve a suspended six-year sentence issued in 2006. A Teachers’ Association member told Human Rights Watch that the authorities provided no information about why the sentence was being carried out at this time. Baghani is in Gohardasht prison, outside of Tehran.

On June 27, 2015, authorities at Branch Two of Evin Court detained Esmail Abdi, the secretary general of the Teachers’ Association, when he went to the court to ask why authorities had prevented him from traveling to Armenia the previous week. A source close to his case told Human Rights Watch that the court authorities told him he was being detained to answer questions about his union activities. He is accused of engaging in “propaganda against the Islamic Republic,” under article 500 of the penal code, and conspiring “against the national or foreign security of the country,” under article 610.

The authorities had previously detained Abdi in 2011 on similar grounds. The source told Human Rights Watch that in 2011 authorities held Abdi in Evin prison for 44 days, 33 of them in solitary confinement, and the remainder in Ward 209, a section of the prison where Human Rights Watch has previously documented abuses. On June 29, 2011, Branch 26 of the Revolutionary Court convicted Abdi of “propaganda against the Islamic Republic” and “disrupting national security,” under article 505 of the penal code, and issued a suspended 10-year sentence.

Reports published on the Teachers’ Association’s website said that authorities with orders from Branch Two of Evin Court detained Mohammad Reza Niknejad, an active union member, and Mehdi Behloli, a previous member of the association’s governing board, on August 31, 2015. Another member told Human Rights Watch that security forces confiscated Niknejad’s computer and mobile phone and accused him of having contact with foreign organizations and the foreign press. The source told Human Rights Watch Behloli and Niknejad are being held in Wards 7 and 8 of Evin prison, units housing prisoners for petty financial crimes. Niknejad and Behloli had spoken with Education Minister Ali Asghar Fani about problems teachers face shortly before their arrests, the source and the Teachers’ Association website said.

On September 6, security forces with a warrant dated July 27 from Branch Two of Evin Court searched the Tehran home of Mahmoud Beheshti, the Teachers’ Association spokesman, and took him into custody. The day before his arrest, Beheshti had participated in a meeting between the association and Vice President Mohammad Baqer Nowbakht, during which he also had spoken about the problems teachers face.

In an interview published by the website of the Teachers’ Association, Peyman Attar, the attorney for Rasoul Bodaghi, said that his client should have been released after the completion of his sentence on August 4. Instead, authorities transferred Bodaghi from Rajaii Shahr prison to Cell Block Aleph of Evin prison, which is run by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). Two members of the Teachers’ Association told Human Rights Watch that Branch 28 of the Revolutionary Court in Tehran sentenced Bodaghi to a new three-year term.

For Immediate Release

Iraq: Militia Abuses Mar Fight Against ISIS 
Tikrit Homes Destroyed, Residents Abducted 

(Washington, DC, September 20, 2015) – Iraqi government-backed militias carried out widespread destruction of homes and shops around the city of Tikrit in March and April 2015 in violation of the laws of war, Human Rights Watch said in a report released today. Militiamen deliberately destroyed several hundred civilian buildings with no apparent military reason after the withdrawal of the extremist armed group Islamic State, also known as ISIS, from the area.

The 60-page report, “Ruinous Aftermath: Militia Abuses Following Iraq’s Recapture of Tikrit,” uses satellite imagery to corroborate accounts of witnesses that the damage to homes and shops in Tikrit, and the towns of al-Bu ‘Ajil, al-Alam, and al-Dur covered entire neighborhoods. After ISIS fled, Hizbollah Battalions and League of Righteous forces, two of the largely Shia pro-government militias, abducted more than 200 Sunni residents, including children, near al-Dur, south of Tikrit. At least 160 of those abducted remain unaccounted for.

“Iraqi authorities need to discipline and hold accountable the out-of-control militias laying waste to Sunni homes and shops after driving ISIS out,” said Joe Stork, deputy Middle East director at Human Rights Watch. “Abusive militias and their commanders acting with impunity undermine the campaign against ISIS and put all civilians at greater risk.”

Ahead of the campaign, Shia militia leaders had promised revenge for the June 2014 massacre by ISIS of at least 770 Shia military cadets from the Camp Speicher facility, near Tikrit. In videos of home demolitions, Shia militiamen curse Sunni residents and invoke Shia slogans.

The militias are part of the Popular Mobilization Forces, consisting of several dozen Shia militias, which the government created in response to the rapid ISIS advance across Nineveh and Salah al-Din provinces in June 2014.

The militias receive government salaries and weaponry but act in loose coordination with one another and with the Iraqi army and other security forces. On April 7, the Iraqi cabinet recognized the Popular Mobilization Forces as a distinct security force under Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi’s command.

Satellite imagery corroborated witness accounts that destruction of buildings occurred primarily after pro-government forces had routed ISIS and the Iraqi army left the area to militia control. Damage from government and US-led coalition airstrikes and artillery or by ISIS during its nine-month rule prior to March was limited.

In one example, Iraqi troops and Shia militias recaptured al-Dur, a town of about 120,000 people 20 kilometers south of Tikrit, without a major battle on March 6, residents told Human Rights Watch. The army withdrew a day later, leaving the town in the hands of the militias. Almost all residents had fled under ISIS or shortly before government forces retook the town. On March 8, Al-Ittijah Channel broadcast footage of Hizbollah Battalions entering the town and defusing ISIS-planted explosive devices and showing al-Dur’s main street, roundabout, and other locations largely intact.

But when local policemen returned to duty in early April they compiled a list of over 600 torched or exploded homes and shops. Satellite imagery taken in May shows large swathes of al-Dur residential areas destroyed. Sheikh Malik Shahhab, a prominent businessman and brother of al-Dur’s mayor, told Human Rights Watch that a member of the Popular Mobilization Forces boasted, “We burned and destroyed al-Dur, because they [the residents] are ISIS and Baathists.”

On March 8, Shia militias and local volunteer fighters retook the town of al-Alam, about 12 kilometers northeast of Tikrit, with a population of about 60,000. Human Rights Watch collected photographs and witness accounts for 28 buildings torched or blown up after the recapture of al-Alam. Some of this destruction is visible on satellite imagery, which shows 45 buildings that had been destroyed in March and April after militia forces captured al-Alam. Local Sunni volunteer fighters who had opposed ISIS control and who were operating under Shia militia protection were responsible for the destruction in al-Alam.

The battle for the city of Tikrit, 180 kilometers north of Baghdad with a peacetime population of about 150,000, lasted from early March until April 1, when Prime Minister al-Abadi declared victory, although sporadic fighting continued. Residents told Human Rights Watch that heavy fighting was largely restricted to the northern Qadisiyya neighborhood, where several hundred homes had been destroyed after militias had routed ISIS.

In Tikrit, militias also engaged in significant looting. Muhammad Jasim, a businessman who runs a large appliance store, showed Human Rights Watch photographs of militias looting and torching his store. In one video, shot on March 31, a white truck is visible in front of Jasim’s store while men in fatigues load up appliances.

Witnesses said Shia militias also carried out apparent extrajudicial killings in Tikrit. A local policeman said that when he patrolled an area of the Qadisiyya neighborhood in early April, he saw two dozen ISIS fighters surrender to Badr Brigades, another Shiite militia, and the League of the Righteous because they were out of ammunition and food. The policeman said he then saw militia members execute some ISIS prisoners on the street. On April 3, Reuters correspondents reporting from Tikrit said they witnessed Federal Police officers stabbing to death a suspected ISIS fighter.

As the biggest contributors to Iraq’s military and security forces, the US and Iran should speak out against militia abuses and make clear that the government is responsible for stopping these abuses and holding those responsible accountable, regardless of rank, Human Rights Watch said. All countries providing military assistance to Iraq should strengthen end-use monitoring of equipment and human rights vetting of recipients, including by publicly reporting on investigations into misuse of assistance and steps taken to address it. These states should support establishing centralized command and control with civilian oversight over the militias and hold those responsible for laws of war violations accountable. Failure by Iraq to do so within one year should lead to suspensions of assistance commensurate with Iraq’s failure to comply.

“Revenge and collective punishment shouldn’t be seen as any part of the strategy for defeating ISIS,” Stork said. “Iraq needs to ensure individual accountability for crimes, whether by Sunni extremists or Shia militiamen.”

In Iran The Security Forces Have The Upper Hand ………Hassan Rohani's Government Is Another " Good For Nothing" …..

36 years have passed since the Iranian people's revolution in 1978-79. The Main goal of the revolution was FReedom and Justice For All Iranian . Right after khomeini took control of the revolution and after the establishment of Islamic regime in Iran , the new theocratic regime's main effort was to control the masses and therefore to establish a much more fearful security intelligence services from among revolutionary guards combined with former regimes intelligence force Savak to protect Islamic regime……..the new regime succeeded to establish that and by their intelligence and repression against other political parties and  organizations as well as political personalities within the provisional government with the tactic of " Divide and rule " was  able to rule for now….. Since then the security forces took the upper hand in Iran's political hierarchy and up to now the so called reformists government was and is unable to bring any reform within the hard core of the Islamic political system…
By saying that, the human rights condition have not changed at all and in fact day after day we are witnessing the continued systematic violation of basic human rights of all Iranian people……
The reason for this is because, those who rule Iran does not believe at all in human rights as adopted by UN and other nations in the world. 
And "Islamic human rights" is nothing but another game to play and therefore the real human rights to delay  ….

To Mr. Ahmad Shaheed, special U.N rapporteur on Iran, 
And also:
Amnesty International
Human Rights Watch
Reporters without Borders
Other Human Rights organizations and institutions,
And also to all human right activist all over the world

A while back, the Islamic Republic regime and its Judiciary sentenced me to four years in prison under the false charges of Acts against national security, insulting the supreme leader, and blasphemy; while my only crime was publicizing my opinions and views on the issues and problems of Iran in virtual space. 
During this time, due to tortures and months of solitary confinement in jails of Islamic Republic’s ministry of intelligence, and the mental pressure and hardship that I went through during those years in prison, I developed heart problems. Over time, suffering those terrible conditions, I also developed diabetes, kidney, prostate, sciatic, and lumbar problems. In 2012 I suffered a heart attack, and after examinations, the doctors recommended that I should be release from prison since I am in terrible health; but the Islamic Republic Judiciary ignored their opinion. Therefore I was released after I finished my sentence in 2014.
But only 38 days after my release, the Ministry of Intelligence arrested and framed me again. They charged me with propaganda against the regime in a mock trial, and sentenced me to one year in prison and two years banishment to Tabas town and confiscation of property. 

Now that I’m reaching the final days of my prison sentence, it is clear to me that I will not be able to endure banishment in one of the harshest environments in the middle of Kavir desert in Iran, and I seriously fear for my life. 
Therefor I ask these respected figures and organizations and also my countrymen to inform the public about my health conditions and the injustice that I have suffered, and to voice their objections to Islamic Republic, so that it might prevent my banishment.
Thank you
Mohammad Reza Shajaripour (Siamack Mehr) Writer of “Reports to Iranian soil” blog.
